Since the Happy Hollow Park and Zoo in San Jose completed a $72-million renovation in March, it's attracted a new set of visitors besides all those tykes and toddlers in high-tops and jeans. Because of the renovation, the zoo was awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certificate — the first in the nation for a zoo or amusement park — by the nonprofit U.S. Green Building Council. Kids who crowd Happy Hollow to see pygmy goats and ring-tailed lemurs must share the zoo with tree-hugging environmentalists who show up to check out the latest in green building designs.

Pop & Jazz Previews by August Brown The Happy Hollows The perennially tipped-for-success Silver Lake trio just released its best work yet, the twisty and frantic yet perpetually melodic album "Spells." Live, they're usually never less than incendiary. The Mint, 6010 Pico Blvd., L.A. Thu., 8 p.m. $10. Atlas Sound Bradford Cox's more intimate and homemade solo project nonetheless captures many of his best traits as a songwriter and arranger -- the wispy guitars, gallons of reverb and his equally doomed and lovestruck lyrics are showcased in sharp focus.
